Jeb Bush to Romney: Pick Rubio

Mitt Romney is still quietly narrowing down his choices for a running mate, but if it were up to Jeb Bush, the Republican presidential candidate would quit messing around and pick Marco Rubio already. Rubio, the senator from Florida, has long been floated as a favorite choice for Romney’s VP, despite frequently denying any interest in the job. Bush, the former Florida governor, told the Associated Press that he spoke to Romney recently and urged him to choose Rubio. The former Massachusetts governor gave no indication of which way he was leaning.
